O.K so you have to complete the sentance "You know when you've played too much Grim Fandango when...blah" Lets see how many reasons we can get.

1) You Know you've played too much Grim Fandango when you finish every sentance with: "viva la revalucion!"

2) when you make a Tim Schafer shrine in your back yard!

3) when you create "how do you know when you've played too much GF?" threads!
